    This question has come up before - here's a reply from a recent thread:

    The only Ford's that cant take a plow are F250/350 diesels with excab,or crew cabs.The weight of the deisel and extra cab are all on the front end,a plow puts them over the weight rating of the front axle.Regular cab trucks are no problem,a and excab gassers are no problem.


    Here's a link to that thread:
